With Batman: Arkham Knight joining the likes of The Order: 1886, Halo 5, Quantum Break and The Witcher 3, I’m left wondering what is left for 2014.
We know Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will stay the course and I’m pretty sure Electronic Arts will ensure Battlefield: Hardline makes its autumn launch window. Then there’s Destiny which (at this moment) is the last man standing as far as I’m concerned. But I will not be shocked if it misses its launch date either.
This will leave a huge void to fill. By the end of the Xbox 360’s first year, we had the launch of Gears of War. And by the end of the PlayStation 3’s first year, there was Uncharted and Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.
With all these cancellations, I’m left wondering where the next big original IPs will be from both first party and third party developers.
